Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • The Modern Lovers: Jonathan Richman (vocals, guitar); Jerry Harrison (keyboards); Ernie Brooks (bass); David Robinson (drums).
  • Producers: John Cale, Kim Fowley.
  • Engineers: Robert Appere, Alan Mason.
  • Digitally remastered by Bill Inglot & Ken Perry.
  • THE MODERN LOVERS is a reissue of the 1975 Beserkley album with two additional tracks.
  • One of the great 'lost' albums in rock history, Modern Lovers offered listeners a bridge between the Velvet Underground and the birth of punk. It also introduced them to Jonathan Richman, a most underrated songwriter. The Modern Lovers' only proper album is actually a collection of demos recorded with John Cale in the early 70s. They were never released until 1976, by which time the band had long passed. The classic tracks available here include 'Pablo Picasso', 'She Cracked' and 'Roadrunner', the subliminal influence at work behind Cornershop's 'Brimful Of Asha'. Richman's aching vocals, often seemingly on the point of collapse, provide the sort of direct emotional connection that great rock 'n' roll has always been about.
Professional Reviews
Spin (p.104) - "New wave's first baby steps."

Q (3/93, p.98) - 5 Stars - Indispensable - "...their delightfully offhand garage rock recalled [singer/songwriter] Richman's mentors, The Velvet Underground, and the cornbread naivete of 1962. He tapped into rock & roll's innocent roots to create a personal landscape..."

Q (11/03, p.136) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Pretty damn essential..."

Uncut (2/04, p.90) - "[T]here's a sincerity in his timbre and pithiness to his lyrics that make Richman's lovelorn protestations seem like those of a genuine poet..."

No Depression (p.91) - "Drummer David Robinson and bassist Ernie Brooks are a stellar rhythm section throughout."
